Sacha Ratcliffe is a sound artist, sound designer, sound editor, sound recorder, filmmaker and graphic designer, based in Montreal.
Her soundscapes are dark & moody, glitched & disturbed, bizarre & alien. Her experimental videos are nostalgic & archaic, accentuated & dense, unstable & anguished. Truth, existentialism and thought inform her art.
Since completing a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts, specializing in Film Production from Concordia University’s Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, Sacha has been working on her creative practice, building a considerable body of audio work, video experiments and sound-based media projects. She has been awarded several grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, le Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec and Les Offices Jeunesse Internationaux du Québec.
She has participated in many residencies abroad; in Sweden, at the Visby International Centre for Composers; in Portugal, at de Liceiras 18; and in France, at La Cité Internationale des Arts, le Cube, le Centre des Arts d’Enghien-les-bains, and le Zinc.
Sacha has collaborated with many other visual artists and filmmakers on installations, video art pieces and short films. Eager to experiment, evolve and collaborate, Sacha is constantly pushing the boundaries of her creative practice.
In April 2016, she presented a new installation piece at Espace Cercle Carré, an artist-run center in Montreal.
